First things first, there are no clear details why Microsoft kicked off with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 at its press conference at E3, possibly because there might be some sort of exclusive agreement with Activision / Infinity Ward, but the game certainly looks amazing.
At the conference it was played on an Xbox 360 and there was a comedy of errors in the beginning with a controller that wouldn’t connect up properly, which got some laughs from the crowd, but after a few seconds the game got rolling and the crowd went silent.
The opening sequence shows the player tracking down and cleaning out a submarine of enemies. Gamers will use mobile underwater devices to track down the submarine and will need to avoid a lot of things like mines and submarine radar in order to seize control.
After seeing so much here, Battlefield 3 is going to have to pull out some serious gameplay in order to top the way Modern Warfare 3 is going.

Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward creative strategist and Glen Schofield, Sledgehammer Games general manager, also came out to talk about the game. In their opening brief they stated how huge the game is and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of the fans and gamers.
Modern Warfare 3 will be releasing across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on 8 November. After the presentation it was also announced that the Xbox 360 version will get add-ons and downloadable content (DLC) first before any other platform.
